Voices Raised on High

The Greater Middletown Chorale, Joseph D'Eugenio, musical director, continues to grow in stature as one of the state's finest vocal ensembles. They work very hard to create programs that are highly musical, informative,and downright entertaining.

This Saturday (February 21), the GMC presents "Harmony and Warmth - A Winter Choral Festival" at 7 p.m. in the beautiful new Cross Street A.M.E. Zion Church, 440 West Street. The culmination of a day-long choral workshop during which members of area choral groups will work alongside the GMC, the concert features Antonio Vivaldi's "Gloria" with piano accompaniment by Allan Conway and solos by Patricia Barbano, Jeanne Caillouette and Margaret Tyler. A.M.E. Zion choir director Paul Cameron will lead the assembled voices in several gospel songs and the finale of the concert will be a performance of Paul Halley's gospel-flavored "The Rain is Over and Gone" featuring the stunning voice of Tiffany Jackson.

Tickets are $10 per person and can be purchased at the door the night of the concert. For more information about the concert, call 860-285-8208.
